“All Have Worth”
September 9, 2018

Today our service has been planned by our worship team. It is our desire that at the conclusion of this service our congregation will want to be a “Ragman” for Jesus because “It’s About Time.”
We ask that you leave the sanctuary quietly by the side door, as much as possible.
In the hall there will be two containers, one for your regular offering envelopes and the other for your “Pennies for Patriots”. We will be collecting pennies starting today and continuing through December. The pennies will then be taken to Fox10 for participation in their 10 Caring Gifts and donated to Volunteers of America for our veterans. Thank you in advance.
* Denotes congregation is invited to stand when directed or to remain standing.
“CCS” Denotes “Community of Christ Sings,” the blue hymn book.
